These Oatmeal Treats are one of the Southern Lady’s favorites.  This is an Amish recipe  from a cookbook that is at least 30 years old.  I make these cookies often because my 4 year old grandson just loves them! They are wonderful for any holiday or event and keep well in an air-tight contain.  These cookies make a great gift for anyone.  Take some to a neighbor or friend.

Amish oatmeal treats are a great snack with milk.

1/2 cup butter or margarine or 1 stick or 8 tablespoons, softened

1/2 cup peanut butter (I use crunchy)

1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1/4 cup milk

1 tsp. vanilla

2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

2  1/2 cups quick uncooked oats

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Beat margarine, peanut butter and sugars together until creamy.  Blend in eggs, milk, and vanilla.  Add flour, soda, and salt to the creamed mixture.  Blend well.  Stir in oats and chocolate chips.  Drop by spoonfuls (I roll mine into balls  with my hands about the size of a walnut and place the ball unmashed) onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake in moderate oven 350 degrees about 15 minutes.  (I like the tops brown, so I usually turn on the broiler for about two minutes before taking out of the oven).  Makes about 3 dozen cookies.    Enjoy!   They won’t last long!
